Laine scores twice but Jets fall in overtime

Little, Ehlers tally others; Hellebuycks stops 32

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick /

TORONTO, ON - At the time it seemed improbable - through foolishly pessimistic - that Auston Matthews and Patrik Laine, in particular, could rival, even top what was an unforgettable head-to-head debut way back in October, but they came darn close Tuesday in the self-described centre of the hockey universe.

The pair squared off for the second time in their young careers, and like Chapter 1 in Winnipeg, Laine got the upper hand in the goal column, but Matthews and the hometown Leafs came out with the victory this time around.

Jake Gardiner scored 2:29 into overtime, and Matthews had three helpers along the way, to give the Leafs a 5-4 win.

Laine, meanwhile, scored twice to help the Jets earn a valuable extra point, sending the club home with a 2-0-2 record on this four-game road trip.

Bryan Little and Nikolaj Ehlers had the other goals for Winnipeg, while Connor Hellebuyck made 32 saves.

"I don't think either team felt that they could get a handle on the game," said Head Coach Paul Maurice. "I can't remember the last time I saw that many icings in one game. For our part we didn't look quite the way we've looked on this trip, and we didn't transition particularly smoothly and never got that neutral zone speed going. It was a bit of a grinder, a bit of a dog in some ways. There were lots of goals but not a whole lot of plays made by either team."

TORONTO, ON - Two names that will forever be linked together - Patrik Laine and Auston Matthews - meet again tonight.

Chapter one was written back in Winnipeg, and tonight the top two picks from the 2016 NHL Draft meet again as the Winnipeg Jets (28-29-5) close out a four-game road trip in Toronto.

Just don't expect them to feed the rivalry talk.

"We're focused on playing against the Maple Leafs," said Laine, talking down any chatter of a rivalry between he and Matthews. "I think both of us are good players. I don't like comparing myself to him… We're different players. I just want to focus on my game."

Perreault, Scheifele & Laine lead Jets to victory

Trio combines for five points; Hellebuyck stops 32 in 3-2 win

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick /

OTTAWA, ON - From the moment Mathieu Perreault was put on the top line with Mark Scheifele and Patrik Laine, a lot of good things have happened for the Winnipeg Jets offensively.

With points in each of his last three, Perreault has rediscovered his touch around the net, Scheifele has had three multi-point efforts, and Laine - the sharp-shooting wunderkind - has had his pursuit of the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie kick into overdrive.

Most importantly, these three were a big reason the team picked up a second straight win, and third in the past four games, on Sunday in Ottawa.

OTTAWA, ON - Halfway through a four-game Eastern Conference road trip, and with three of a possible four points in their pocket, the Winnipeg Jets fly into Ottawa looking for more.

It will be the eleventh time this season that the Jets will play on back-to-back days, but the Senators will be in the same boat, having played last night in Toronto.

The Jets (27-29-5) are coming off a 3-1 win in Montreal, a victory that sent Canadiens fans home disappointed after Claude Julien's debut behind the bench.

"We were prepared for a real heavy push early. We got out of the gate and kept it quiet for the most part," said head coach Paul Maurice. "There weren't any flurries around our net, which is where the building is able to get going. Anything that gets close to your goal, it gets loud in here. We did a good job of not allowing zone time where they get rolling around. They feed off that. All teams do."

The win was also the third straight game the Jets have picked up at least a point in the standings, going 2-0-1 in that span. The overtime loss came in Pittsburgh back on Thursday, but captain Blake Wheeler says that was also when a more physical Jets team emerged.
